Criteria for selection of the winner will be determined by the person's achievements, including but not limited to:
* Building and managing new types of electronic collections and materials
* Addressing selection issues and processes for electronic resources
* Creating effective organizational structures for the workflow management and development of electronic resource collections
* Increasing visibility, discovery and user access to electronic library resources
Nominations should include the name, address, phone number and email address of each nominee and nominating party, a formal statement of nomination that includes a rationale, a description of any projects that the nominee has initiated and successfully completed and letters of support and endorsement. Letters of endorsement from others should provide additional evidence of the worthiness of the nominee. The number of letters of endorsement received for a nominee shall not be a determining factor in the selection process; rather, the evidence of the person's accomplishments that fulfill the intent of the award shall be the factor considered. Self-nominations will not be accepted. Current employees of ProQuest and its subsidiaries are not eligible for the award.
